MCU-Coatings® for Bridge and General Construction application: New build / Full removal and Over-coating
MCU-Coatings has one of the most successful track records in the industry on bridge projects, with numerous of bridges around the world.
Combine the durability and long life-cycle, together with the application advantages of MCU-Coatings proprietary moisture cure technology, and you have a system that can’t be matched.
Successful application during high humidity and or minus temperatures to -15°C below freezing (10°F) made many paint contractors and owners to satisfied customers.
On new construction or full removal steel projects, MCU-Coatings 2 or 3 layer systems will give you the toughest, longest lasting coating system.
For existing paint over-coating projects, including old lead coatings, MCU-Coatings have proven successful for over 20 years, without delaminating. MCU-Miozinc in a 2 or 3 layer system can save you large costs on a repainting project by eliminating the need of full removal of the old system. The old coating can be successfully encapsulated with MCU-Coatings, thereby eliminating not only the cost of removal, but also the hazard and additional costs of removing lead based coatings.
Our systems exceeds up to 20.000 hours salt fog exposure, providing the best service life of any coating systems. The build in greater flexibility allows structure vibrations without cracking of the coating. Together with the proven cathodic and barrier protection, makes MCU-Coatings the best choice your bridge project.
MCU-Coatings® for Wastewater application
MCU-Coatings systems exceed 15.000 hours and up to 20.000 hours salt fog exposure. Together with the intrinsic chemical resistance of the binder and its pigments there is no better choice for wastewater applications. Extreme abrasive resistance combined with the high barrier effect, this MCU-Coatings system can be used for immersed and non-immersed structures. Shut downs for repainting can be shortened by 30 - 40 % when using MCU-Coatings compared with 2 pack Epoxy/PU systems. The high humidity and moisture content in the concrete makes MCU-Coatings as a natural for these repainting projects.
MCU-Coatings® for Tunnels application
Perfect adhesion on concrete, resisting the moisture in the concrete, and can be applied in cold damp conditions. This is perfect for night work, when traffic is low. Smooth chemical resistant and good cleanable coating MCU-Coatings offers MCU-NiteGlo, a luminescent coating, glowing up to 8 hours. This can be used for safety marking.
MCU-Coatings® for Other Industries application
Pulp & Paper, Food industry, etc… enjoys all the same benefits of MCU-Coatings advantages.
Exceeding 15.000 to 20.000 hours salt fog exposure. Together with the intrinsic chemical resistance extreme abrasive resistance and a high barrier effect, this MCU-Coatings systems can be used for immersed and non-immersed structures. Shut downs for repainting can be shortened by 30 - 40 % when using MCU-Coatings compared with 2 pack Epoxy/PU systems.
In case of concrete structures, high humidity and moisture content in the concrete makes MCU-Coatings as a natural for these repainting projects.
In addition to the protection, MCU-Coatings systems offers the easiest application available:
* Can be applied at high humidity (up to 99% RH)
* No dew point restriction on visible dry surfaces (day and night application possible)
* Our Primer MCU-Miozinc tolerates over-coating old “good” coatings
* Our Primer MCU-Miozinc tolerates St 2 and St 3, UHP and abrasive prepared surfaces
* Can be applied in cold weather down to minus -15°C
* Superior impact and abrasion resistance
* Excellent long-life flexibility, resisting structural flex
* Excellent adhesion to various substrates
* Can be over-coated within 30-40 minutes of application
* Proves faster project completion time at lower implementation cost on any project that has to deal with climatic weather restrictions.
